The Clinical and Pathophysiological Aspects of Feline Lung-Digit Syndrome
Feline Oncology can be a challenging discipline and clinicians need to understand the natural history of tumours to understand clinical presentation and management. The lifestyle of cats often presents further challenges as clinical features of disease are recognised at a very advanced stage. Lung - digit syndrome in cats is a syndrome commonly associated with lung cancer. In this webinar we will explore clinical presentation and pathophysiology of this condition and how it can be managed. More broadly we will examine the management of lung cancer in cats and other tumours that are associated with the respiratory system. This includes prognosis and management, including palliation.
